Yann Le Cun, father of Artificial Intelligence at Naples Astroinformatics

Yann Le Cunn

If you have already marked the 2 October, you will surely know that Naples will transform into a true Mecca of technological and scientific innovation.
Why? Well, Astroinformatics 2023 is coming, and with him no less Yann Le Cun, a true titan of artificial intelligence.

If astrophysics and AI are your daily bread, this is the event for you.

What is Astroinformatics 2023

Astroinformatics is certainly not just any conference. It is the event of the year for those who know astronomical data and want to take a look at future through the prism of information technology.
For about ten years now, the event has brought together the crème de la crème of researchers who are changing the rules of the game incomputational astronomy.

What will we talk about at Astroinformatics

This time, however, the stakes are raised. This year's event will dive headfirst into the uncharted waters ofartificial intelligence and deep learning. But not only that: we will discuss the headaches linked to the data of future space projects, we will explore the world of quantum computing and we will talk about Generative and explainable AI, specifically in the astronomical context.

The great thing is that there will also be space for spontaneous contributions and, obviously, a gallery of themed posters to satiate your hunger for knowledge.

A distinguished guest: Yann Le Cun

If Astroinformatics is the highlight, Yann Le Cun is undoubtedly there icing on the cake. Imagine a mix between a technology rock star and an AI philosopher: well, that man will be the opening speaker of the conference. A source of pride not only for the event, but for the whole Italian and international scientific community.

Who is Yann Le Cun?

But who is this Le Cun really? He's sort of Swiss Army knife of innovation: expert in automatic learning, pioneer in artificial vision, master in robotics and, to top it off, also a fan of computational neuroscience.

He has achieved success after success, from being one of the brains behind the DjVu compression technology to the creation of neural networks that revolutionized computer vision. Oh, and by the way, it's also the head of AI for Facebook. In short, a true giant in the sector.
